Classic Camel and Black Outfit

 This is one of those everyday outfits that gets worn a lot! I’m besotted with the contrast between camel and black, and since buying this coat it seems to be an outfit that i reach for a lot!
Smart-casual outfits are high on my agenda of late. It’s super cold here in Wales at the moment (hello -3 degrees celcius!) so comfy knits and thick jeans are all i can think of right now. I’ve been reading my weekly deluge of magazines and i have to admit i started to get a little bit excited for spring! The thought of not layering up so heavily became slightly appealing. I miss my light blazers and chiffon tops.
But having said that i do still love dressing for winter, i still love boots and layers and knitwear and coat, man do i love coats! Good job really, with it being a long ol’ winter here in the UK!
So back to the outfit today, my be-loved black coated skinny jeans, teamed up with some camel on camel with the sweater and the coat. All finished off with a Yosa scarf, a camel hat and my favourite ankle duo boots.
I like to complete an easy look like this with red nails and red lips to take it from super casual to a little more chic. I find make-up can really make a big difference in a subtle way.

Are you looking forward to spring? Or are you relishing in the winter-goodness for a while longer?

And have you tried black and camel together? It really is one of my favourites!

    I'm already tired of winter, even though there's so much left! I love this outfit on you. The mix of neutrals is elegant and the pop of red on your nails is timeless.

    Gorgeous! I like how uniform the color is. You also look great in hat, I want one so badly but have yet to find one that look good on me *sigh*

    I have to admit, I totally love the weather at the moment because it's cold and crisp and means that I can wear my fur coats.I love coats.

    I'm loving the camel that's in right now too. The light color against your dark hair and red lips looks gorgeous. Keep up the good work!

    I absolutely love the camel on you. It washed me out, maybe because of my hair colour. I must try red lips too! I share your love for coats

    I'm still loving the layering I can do during this time of year. It doesn't last long! I'm feeling florals and pastels for whatever reason lately though. I'm loving this classic look of yours. The camel and black shades look great together!

    I have that hat too Rachel! I love it but I haven't worn it for ages- as I type, I glance up to my bookshelf and see a large collection of large floppy hats piled up and it is sitting there beaming at me because I noticed it!
    You look really pretty in this- luminous!x
